A gateway to lifelong learning

From vintage class notes to the most recent scientific studies, the ADA Library & Archives is a fount of knowledge for both dental students and seasoned professionals. Although most people may think of a library as a physical place (and there is a physical library in the ADA building in Chicago), the Library & Archives has a wide selection of online collections, including about 10,000 journals and hundreds of textbooks, all available to any ADA member.

5 lessons I learned after finishing dental school
